Technological regression is anything less than now , not completely leaving technology.

It's not like a made one like this or anything.

Did you ? Sorry

Scientific progression in general.

The Religious People who pick "Technological regression" are just as bad as the terrorists who wanna live back in the stone ages.
Theunkown says2014-07-27T13:31:43.8360601-05:00
Why, just WHY would you want technological regression?
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-27T16:01:43.7462789-05:00
Religious People? ChosenWolff seems to be an anti-theist, and he picked technological regression. My reasons for desiring technological regression do have some to do with religion, but I have other reasons too, pertaining to Libertarianism.
Renegader says2014-07-27T16:06:08.0465615-05:00
I guess I would call myself somewhat a libertarian and I don't see how technological progression contradicts such a philosophy. I embrace scientific and robotic progression in every way. I hope both physics and bio-engineering occur.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-27T16:10:08.9151935-05:00
I can assure you that technology is a very big threat to freedom. In the short term, terrorism and rebel groups running amok are the greatest threats to freedom. But in the long term, a Government with full knowledge of every aspect of its subject's lives is the true threat to freedom. A Government knowing everything about its subjects can only come to be through technology. Mind Reading technology is starting to be developed, and you can be certain that the Government will have this technology developed and utilized.
Renegader says2014-07-27T16:16:12.7079399-05:00
But isn't it illogical to live in fear of this technology rather than see all the huge benefits that it might provide humanity? Science and technology are the crowning achievements of mankind. They are what separates us from the gorillas. Sure there will be privacy concerns but as long as there is responsible research and regulation, the benefits will be infinite.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-27T16:18:34.0504789-05:00
What is the point of living longer and all that jazz when you're a slave? And no, I do not fear technology (notice that I'm using the internet right now). What I fear is a Government that will misuse technology. And I can assure you that this will happen eventually.
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-27T16:19:12.6268059-05:00
And by the way, technology is not what sets us apart from apes.
Renegader says2014-07-27T16:27:04.0909819-05:00
I did not mean it literally separates us from apes as that is clearly genetics. I meant more that without technology,we are primal and weak like most other biological life. Also, I get that your concern is about people misusing technology, but that does not justify stopping advancement. People will always misuse what is in their power, but who is to say there will not be enough checks on this power. I am optimistic on human capacity to harness technology. It is not just about "living longer," it is about unlocking the secrets of the universe, and basically becoming a god race.
JasperFrancisShickadance says2014-07-27T16:27:50.2016259-05:00
@LogicalLunitic, how is it not something that sets us apart from apes?!
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-27T16:29:37.4759489-05:00
It is A thing that sets us apart from animals, but what really makes us different is our ability to think for ourselves...That and our souls. On a completely unrelated note, have you ever heard of the Death Metal Rooster?
Formerland1 says2014-07-27T16:43:28.0312373-05:00
This was the point if the test , to bring out the Luddites .
Formerland1 says2014-07-27T16:44:01.9774901-05:00
Oh no cybernetics didnt get put up there !!!!!! I will add it strait away .
Renegader says2014-07-27T16:52:50.2348487-05:00
Great poll formerland. I switched my answer to cybernetics, that's awesome. Luddites will be luddites I guess
Formerland1 says2014-07-29T18:06:47.8877129-05:00
I'm surprised at the number if Luddites , so there is a ludicrous amount of Luddites .
LogicalLunatic says2014-07-29T20:39:28.7924538-05:00
3 is a ridiculous number? Really?
Formerland1 says2014-07-29T21:34:05.3711607-05:00
When I a pie chart compared to other sections its very big.
MasterDebater0 says2014-10-01T00:39:35.7586795-05:00
Anyone picking regression is an idiot.
